Gov Drumet-Morris Brian's padsDov Grumet-Morris has a simple philosophy when it comes to his goaltending equipment.

The San Antonio Rampage stopper isn’t worried about a lot of custom options. He just wants something that works for his game – and then holds that shape and form so it keeps working over time.

So when asked about his Brian’s setup for this season, Grumet-Morris didn’t have a lot of answers, saying only that he relayed his sizing and pad preferences to their pro rep, Chris Joswiak, and didn’t worry or know too much about any custom options.

As it turns out, the entire 36+2 pad is a custom blend of the Pro Stock, Sub Zero and new G-NETik lines from Brian’s Custom Sports. Only the gloves are a stock Pro Stock option, according to Joswiak.

Grumet-Morris may not have known that, but he knows what he likes – and why he likes this set up.

“They’re very light and they hold their form very well, those are probably the two biggest things,” Grumet-Morris told InGoal Magazine during a recent post-game chat. “I like it pretty stiff. I don’t want it to change or shrink too much.”

The styling synonymous with Brian’s doesn’t hurt either.

“It’s clean and I think it looks kind of cool with those tiger stripes down the side,” Grumet-Morris said.

As you can see from the photos below, including some back-of-pad photos that show off the custom blend aspects like the Sub Zero knee, and some action shots from that recent game, it’s hard to argue with him:

  1. Tim says:

    What kind of skates is he wearing?

  2. BeninLondon says:

    They kind of look like CCM’s, not sure if they would be the vectors or not, hard to tell.

  3. Kevin Woodley says:

    We checked other photos on file and the skates appear to be a (slightly old) CCM U+ Pro but we will double check. Not uncommon for guys to stick with something they like a long time, Martin Biron wore same old skate for a decade +

  4. Paul Ipolito says:

    A follow-up story on Dov’s career might be interesting. I think he has had an interesting minor-league career and he hangs in tough year after year.

  5. Matt says:

    The skate are an older U+ pro. I have a pair of his pro-return skates and they are fantastic. Had an unbelievably flat profile on them when they came though!
